Amazing strides have been made in the world of restorative dentistry. Dentures, once the most common means of replacing missing and failing teeth, are no longer the only solution. Those looking to ditch the dentures can now opt to receive dental implants as a method of replacing one tooth, several teeth, or an entire upper or lower full arch of teeth. There are many options out there in terms of material, leading many people to wonder which dental implant bridge lasts the longest.
Often, the most commonly used material for dental implant bridges is acrylic. Acrylic Hybrid Bridges are composed of a set of denture teeth attached to acrylic gums, usually with a titanium bar to connect the bridge to the dental implants. Despite being commonly used, acrylic is notorious for breaking, chipping, cracking, and losing teeth. The proof is in a recent study of the failure rates of acrylic bridges delivered using the NobelGuide®All-on-4® Treatment. Of the patients studied, nearly 1-in-4 needed to replace their final acrylic bridge.
Obviously, all dental implant bridges are not created equal. However, the Teeth Tomorrow® Prettau® Zirconia bridges provided exclusively by Tischler and Patch Dental have been proven to be the longest lasting and most reliable implant bridge.
The highly respected Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry has published a second study on the long-term survival rate of Prettau® Zirconia full-arch dental implant bridges. The results certainly speak for themselves; of the 191 upper and lower Prettau® Zirconia full-arch bridges implanted, only 1 required replacement. This is a staggering Cumulative Survival Rate of 99.4% for the Teeth Tomorrow® treatment!
Each Prettau® Zirconia implant bridge is not only designed to be completely lifelike, but is composed of space-age material that is naturally resistant to the chipping, breaking and staining that come from the normal wear and tear of everyday life. Your new full-arch implant will also avoid attracting the bacteria and plaque that cause oral disease, so you can enjoy all your favorite foods again.
